Made with Love :: Another Birthday Cake for Mom!

by | Jan 17, 2014 | Cake Decorating, Happy Birthday, Kids in the Kitchen | 29 comments

This evening, after Math and Science lessons with the tutor, the children borrowed the camera and kicked me out of the kitchen so they could decorate another birthday cake for me, just like they did last year!  It was a full day for them so I baked the chocolate cake, whipped up some chocolate cream cheese frosting, and then had fun molding some fondant with my gorgeous new St. Cecilia mold (which my husband gave me for Christmas!!!) before they took over and did the rest.  I thought they did a beautiful job! I sure love this little family of mine!

    And we are hoping to get around to taking the Christmas tree down this weekend. . . It's been awhile since I've had a birthday with it still up!

    I was going to comment that it was nice to see your Christmas tree still up! Just this past Sunday in his homily, the priest said he hoped some people still did (have their tree)!

    We've taken the ornaments off, but it is still up! I love it when we are able to keep it up until the feast of the Baptism of the Lord! It does need to come down soon though, since it is starting to get pretty dry.

    Great cake! so pretty!! I love the picture with all the kids and the cake–especially with Rose on the couch! Too cute! Was she tired out from all the excitement of decorating the cake?

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
